More Atticus Finch than Jay Gatsby, I can admire aspects of both. I have abundant integrity and compassion. While reserved at first, I connect intimately with people I care about and find joy in making them smile. I dote.
At times I have surfed the wave of a relationship, cruising above the water and feeling the wind at my face. Colors looked brighter and scents were sweeter. I long to find that again.
My partner, my teammate, will be someone balanced between responsibility and fun. Words are her friend, smiles are her currency.
I was going to try to close with something deep and/or pithy, but I realized that what I want was presented well in the movie 'Up'. Plans and dreams are wonderful, but making the everyday into the wonderful is the dream.
